The official launch and naming ceremony will take place at noon on Thursday, September 19, and we would be delighted to have you attend. Kitigànensag is a source of pride for the whole community, and especially for the many volunteers who built it and the gardeners who are harvesting the first crop. It is an excellent example of students, staff and faculty coming together to create something sustainable, recreational, educational and accessible to the whole community.

When: Noon, Thursday September 19, 2013

Additional Information: Algonquin Elders have suggested the name Kitigànensag (pronounced Kitta-gone-ehns-sug) which means “Little Gardens.” The full name is Kitigànensag: GSA Carleton Community Garden. Elders will be present to speak and perform a naming ceremony.
